Marilyn Monroe's life is still obsessed over, even fantasized about, years after she died of an overdose in 1962. To celebrate the actress on what would have been her 92nd birthday, The Lexington Hotel in New York City is unveiling a redesign of the suite she once lived in.

Formerly known as The Centerfield Suite, it's been re-imagined as The Norma Jeane Suite and pays homage to Marilyn - who lived in the room after she and Yankees icon Joe DiMaggio eloped in 1954. Starting on June 1, you can stay in their former residence for $1,200 a night.

The stunning 600-square-foot space has a living room and dining area that leads to a 200-square-foot private terrace.

The new look was done by design company Fringe, and the rooms feature a palette of black, white, blush, and pops of red - Marilyn's favorite lip color. The suite even includes bags from her favorite store, Bloomingdales, plus monogramed Dorothy Draper cocktail glasses and a vintage Dom Perignon Champagne bucket in the bar.
